Keeping Passwords Secure- Microsoft Policy on Getting Around Passwords


Microsoft Support Engineers cannot help users to in any way circumvent passwords. This is for your security. Please see our policy here. In support of this policy, we ask that no posts relating to password cracking be posted in our forums. Such posts will be deleted, and users who post this type of information may be banned from the forums.


If you see a post that seems to offer password cracking advise, please click the “report abuse” link to help us find and deal with it.


Regarding questions with respect to resetting hardware BIOS passwords we would request that you direct customers to the appropriate resources on the Hardware manufacturers sites for the correct procedure.
